The Minds Eye -The Peoples Choice Fresh Garden - Chelsea Flower Show 2014

The Peoples Choice Fresh Garden - The Minds Eye 
Sponsored by the RNIB
Naturally a sensory garden described as using materials, textures,smells and tastes. Stucturally it also creates a series of contrasting sensory experiences with the cleaver use of water. Sucessesfully it uses lots of every day plants like rosemary, thymes, lavendula, pachysandra, heuchera, aquilegia and achillea to best effect. There was a rather unusual primular in the planting listed as Primula chungensis.

One of its strength is the variety of the borders they are all different and include an edible border, damp shade, Mediterranean and so forth. It was a gentle but stimulating space to enjoy.
